    I'm buying two for me (one to play with and one to keep in the package) and one for onw of my cousins. He's cool and can't make it to C3. But I'm sure he will like the Darth Vader figurine.

    I'm going to be flying in Wed morning, and leaving sunday night :) We're staying at the Omni, yay and stuff.

    LOL - I'm already trying to figure out how I'm going to fit all my Padme hairpieces and petticoats and parasol-thingies in my shipping boxes, and have room for Ash's xwing helmet and my dad's lightsaber...
    May have to expand to 3 boxes this time around... :B

    You're wearing costumes?!?! How many do you have?!?!
    I don't know if I'm gonna have a costume or not yet. Gotta get with some of the guys about that. Good luck with your packing.

    lol thanks, it's gonna be a puzzler trying to get everything in.
    Yeah, I'm a costume whore, haha. I gotta wear my costumes or I'm not happy... I'm bringing my 4 Padmes, Leia, my Imperial Officer, plus the two I'm working on now for C3 especially, and then my dad's Qui-Gon, and my friend's X-Wing pilot uniform will have to fit too.

    BTW, does anyone know any tourist-y things to do in Indianapolis? We wanted to do something wednesday afternoon, but their Art Museum is going to be closed in April (boo!), so we've been looking for something else to do!
    Ha, maybe we should just nap and conserve energy for the next 4 days :D

    Can they attach a U-haul trailer to an airplane, Kell? Sounds like you're going to need it!

    Lori: Mr. If-you'll-wear-it-I'll-get-it (AKA Sal)has gone AWOL on us lately!

    Dang him!!! I was wondering if he was planning on posting again anytime soon. Haven't seen him on recently.
    I'm now really excited about it, and he disappears. Plus, I get the added bonus of embarrassing my best friend.
    If you talk to him soon, tell him to get on it.

    Kell I have the perfect solution to all your traveling needs when it comes to packing. (Paces arround table covered with red sheet) Are you tired of having to sacrifice well made costumes because the freakin airlines think that your "parasol" conflicts with national security? Well then I give you.....(Throws sheet off the table)

    Those were just the ones that if there is a SW event, you can pretty much cont on them being there. I'm sure there will be some big surprizes for you all!

    If you're interested I can email you exactly what he asks for an appearance fee. ;)

    I wonder if we can get them to a drive-in night? [face_laugh].

    Give them 10 years, and it probably wouldn't be a problem.

    For those who haven't ordered their badges for CIII yet, you have until March 4th in order for the badges to be shipped to you. If you wait until afterward, you'll have to pick them up at CIII. (And if you think MSC's will-call line is a mess, I bet the CIII will-call line will be 100 times longer.)

    In other CIII news, apparently for $50 more you could have breakfast with Captain Typho and Wicket with the fan club. It's already sold out, believe it or not. I wonder where you buy your tickets to go binge drinking with Carrie Fisher and Harrison Ford?

    Where do we sign up and pay for the Indianapolis FF party? I was VERY tempted by that breakfast, but 6:30 am...*Yipes* especially after drinking and partying the night before...

    Now, if there is a breakfast with Hayden. I'll stay up all night to get there first. [face_devil]/>/>

    Breakfast.... Yeah, that's what you want to have with Hayden. Sure, Rhonda. :p
    I can't remember where they were selling the tickets for the FF party. I think you can buy them at the door for $5 more. I'll see if I can't find a link.

On January 14, registration will begin for FanForce members as well as anyone and everyone else. Many FanForce members are also members of the 501st and/or Rebel Legion, hence the reason those two group will register first.

    I have to say that I'd want to have breakfast with Hayden. After a long night with him, of course.

    I'd feel for Hayden if LFL started selling tickets for that, Lori. If they could get him to agree to it, and if they knew they could make a buck off of it, you know they'd be offering it. Poor guy- I'm sure that not everyone in that line would be female. But, if they added Ewan, Ray, Temuera, Natalie, and Kierra in that mix, then the CIII site would eventually read "Star Wars Celebration III- Now in its 425th week!"

    Then they'd have your second-string actors who'd be ho'ed out for less. You know, a night with David Prowse or Michael Sheard for only $25 or something like that. Those guys would be at the discount table, and would come with a T-shirt that said "I boinked Darth Vader/Admiral Ozzel...etc."

    I'd definitely pay a lot of money to meet Hayden, Ewan, Natalie, and Kiera. I'm still really excited about Ray being in the autograph hall.

    You know Hayden won't do autographs. He'd get mobbed like a merf. That, and it would threaten too many fanboys' masculinity when they see just how big and imposing he now is.
